Knowledge test and text recognition (multiple choice): For each of the following questions or statements, there is one correct answer to choose from. (If you tick more than one box per question/statement, it does not count.) 1.1 Concerning Homer, most modern scholars agree that o the historicity of Homer as a person cannot be doubted. o Homer lived in the 5th century B.C. o Homer wrote both the Iliad and the Odyssey. o the ancient biographies about Homer are fictitious constructs. 1.2 Which of the following is the name of one of Penelope s suitors in the Odyssey? o Aegisthus o Agamemnon o Alcinous o Antinous 1.3 Which of these Greek authors was not a dramatist? o Aeschylus o Hesiod o Menander o Euripides PLEASE WRITE CLEARLY WITH PEN

2 1.4 How many comedies did Aristophanes write, and how many are preserved? o 46 written, 11 preserved o 80 written, 7 preserved o 80 written, 17 preserved o 120 written, 7 preserved 1.5 In Plato s dialogue The Symposium, the speakers Eryximachus and Aristophanes swap the order of their speeches. Why? o because Aristophanes has not arrived yet o because Socrates prefers this order o because Aristophanes is too drunk at the moment o because Aristophanes has a hiccup 1.6 Which of the following is not a Greek term of love and desire? o agape o eros o hamartia o himeros 1.7 Which of these authors was not the author of a Greek love novel? o Achilles Tatius o Petronius o Heliodorus o Longus 1.8 One of the following equations Greek god(dess) = Roman god(dess) is wrong, the others are correct. Which one is wrong? o Hera = Juno o Artemis = Diana o Ares = Mars o Hestia = Ceres Side 2 av 5

3 1.9 Which period is often called the era of Vergil (aetas Vergiliana) because of Vergil s popularity? o the Carolingian Renaissance (8th/9th century A.D.) o the Late Mediaeval Renaissance (12th century A.D.) o the Byzantine Renaissance (12th century A.D.) o the European Renaissance (14th-17th century A.D.) 1.10 What happened in the year 146 B.C. in Roman history? o the restoration of the old Roman Republic o the partition of the Roman Empire into a Western and an Eastern Empire o the Battle at Actium o the end of the Third Punic War 1.11 When died Ovid? o 43 B.C. o 19 B.C. o 8 B.C. o 18 A.D From which Roman author does this quote come? Conquered Greece conquered back the savage victor and brought the arts into rustic Latium. o Vergil o Horace o Catullus o Ovid Side 3 av 5

4 1.13 Where does this textual excerpt come from? So I cried out but Ajax answered not a word. He stalked off toward Erebus, into the dark to join the other lost, departed dead. Yet now, despite his anger, he might have spoken to me, or I to him, but the heart inside me stirred with some desire to see the ghosts of others dead and gone Where does this textual excerpt come from? And I think that this last chapter will prove very agreeable to its readers; it cleanses away the grim events of the earlier ones. There will be no more pirates or slavery or lawsuits or fighting or suicide or wars or conquests; now there will be lawful love and sanctioned marriage Where does this textual excerpt come from? And other mothers came to try to help me, prayed, urged me to keep trying. One of them, Galanthis, yellow-haired, one of my servants, a good devoted girl (I loved her for it) saw there was something wrong, and knew that Juno was working mischief. Side 4 av 5

5 2. Essays: Please choose two (2) from the three essay topics below. (If you write on all three, the last of your essays will be ignored.) Each of your two essays should be 2-3 pages long. Both of your essays have to be discursive in nature, viz. you have to argue your point by way of an analytic and consistent argument. You are advised to use the analytic concepts, terms and tools as they were introduced, explained and demonstrated in class. You must write full and coherent sentences. a) Write an essay (2-3 pages) on the ethical questions and problems in Sophocles Antigone. Explain and discuss the ethical questions and problems as they are presented in Sophocles Antigone, and in which ways they shape the composition and nature of Sophocles drama and its protagonists. You should also use Aristotelian concepts of tragedy in your discussion. b) Write an essay (2-3 pages) on the political dimension of Vergil s Aeneid. Explain and discuss the political dimension of Vergil s Aeneid and the ramifications of the text s political coloring upon its literary interpretation. You should also critically discuss some modern interpretations and theories which deal with the Aeneid s political dimension. c) Write an essay (2-3 pages) on the story of Pyramus and Thisbe in Ovid s Metamorphoses. Analyse and discuss the structure and composition of the story of Pyramus and Thisbe in Ovid s Metamorphoses and explain, on the basis of this story, the narrative techniques that are typical of Ovid s Metamorphoses. It is important that your analysis is clearly based on the text (see text in translation attached). Side 5 av 5
